Inclusion and Diversity hackathon

Inclusion and Diversity hackathon for start-ups and scale-ups

WeAreTechWomen’s next inclusion and diversity (I&D) hackathon will focus on actions specific to start-up and scale-up companies and will be hosted by the Tech Talent Charter (TTC).

Running over one month, the hackathon kicks off on Tuesday 29th June – when four groups of inclusion and diversity subject matter experts will collaborate to build new products for WeAreTechWomen’s Open Playbook – and concludes on Thursday 29th July 2021.

Participants for each team will be experts on specific topic I&D areas and will work in small, virtual teams of 5 or 6, led by a team leader to deliver a new employer product for the Open Playbook to be judged by an expert panel.

The TTC is specifically seeking people who have strong inclusion and diversity (I&D) knowledge and experience of at least one of the following areas specifically related to startup or scale-up environments:

  • Cultivating an inclusive culture
  • Reward and retention
  • Hiring diverse tech talent: accessing all of the talent pool (ie. attraction strategies, job advertisements, pathways offered etc)
  • Hiring diverse tech talent: assessing talent (shortlisting and selection methods, alternatives to interviews, hiring managers etc)

Participants will have the opportunity to connect and learn from subject matter experts at other organisations; deepen their understanding of the topic area and what other organisations are doing in this space; participate in creative co-design sessions and support the TTC by developing the Open Playbook.
